Aviance by Prince Matchabelli (Prince Matchabelli 1975) is an aldehydic floral with, as Yesterday’s Perfume put it, a “disturbingly rich base”. Disturbingly rich base is right…
But Aviance starts with a powerful, biting and green edge. It’s crisp and rowdy in a refined, very 1970’s way. However, as it progresses it transforms into something out of a Martin Scorcese film, likely worn by a poignant beautiful female. It’s bold, lush and stunning but dated in the best possible meaning of that word.
I smell anise whether it’s there or not, and a warm but feisty musk. This is a tough perfume, but with sparkling sincerity… It’s unique, animalic and definitely sexy.
I don’t know what to write about in this section right now… It’s been a long week.
Thanks for reading. 🙂
